A prayer for Memorial Day


Dear Heavenly Father, 

As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every day, we think of how they have followed in the footsteps of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. 

Please hold our servicemen and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and your presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.

We also remember the families of our troops. We ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes, and we pray your peace, provision, and strength will fill their lives. 

May the members of our armed forces be supplied with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support. 

In the name of Jesus. Amen.

As you spend this Memorial Day weekend with friends and family, we hope you, too, will pause and say a prayer to God for His continued love and protection to be present in the lives of those who are currently serving our Country and those who have sacrificed their lives for the freedom we experience in America.

With great respect for our Military,
Suzanne and Tracy
